So we went to Grönalund this weekend, which is a very well known park with rides in Stockholm. Even though Daniel is a bit too small for it, we gave it a try. There were only a couple of rides that he could do, but we did those a hundred times. We did a couple of scary ones too, which I think they went ok, he didn't cry at least….
Hakan took him on his first Roller Coaster ride, yes I know… this is usually my department cause my husband doesn't like these things. But since I'm a bit fat, I don't think it's a good idea for me to go on one of those. He seemed to have a lot of fun and we had a good day all together.
We got to see Bob the builder, who seems to be very well known around here. All the kids were all over him. I actually think that is a good character to follow. I've seen one of his DVD'S and I think its one of the few good cartoons for small kids.
I went with Daniel in the Veteran's Car, which an old car that he feels like he's driving. Of course it's funny that the whole time I was talking to him, here is bla, bla bla… and all the pictures Håkan took are useless cause my mouth is always moving. And when it's not moving.. guess what I'm doing? yes, fixing Daniel's hat or his jacket or something… can't a just shut up and let my son enjoy the ride?????jajaja, I guess I can't stop being a MOM!!

Sorry for not writting too much lately but I guess it all has to do with two things. Number 1 I've been feeling so good lately that I've tried to be as active as possible. I've been working out and swimming. Also I've tried to keep Daniel one day a week at home. So I plan a long nice day with him, I've taken him to the Zoo, or to a different part of town to a new park etc.. I've been so excited about this weather, that I always think that if its a nice day I will try to keep Daniel with me at home. And this is what brings me to Number 2……The weather has been GREAT… SUMMER IS HERE!!! IN SWEDEN IN EARLY MAY!!! Hard to believe for an early May summer…. but yes, it's been beautiful everyday. So I've had no excuse to pick Daniel up late from daycare or not taking him to different places.
I've made a couple of really good friends around where we live, and we usually meet after daycare so that the kids can play. Here is Madeleine and her two daughters, Lizabella and Geraldine. She is from Panama, and is one of our very good friends. We have taken them to different parks so that they don't get too bored. Anyway, I must say that having friends is a blessing. And the best part is that even the husbands are getting along very good as well. They are scandinavian and they are married to latin american girls, so needless to say there is a lot in common among them. Even though us girls are personally very different. I guess that's what makes it interesting. We are getting to be a big family. I predict a wonderful summer, full of fun activities.
Last year we spent summer here and it seemed like we were left alone in Stockholm. All Swedes leave Stockholm during the summer, they all go to their summer houses or away somewhere. We normally take our vacations during the winter so summer we are left alone here. but now that we met two other families in the same spot as we are, well its great to know that we won't be the only ones.
Like I said already we are doing lots of stuff with the kids. Here is Camilla and Daniel on the bus, we are on our way to a fun park. They are obviously having fun even before we get there. Camilla is a year older than Daniel but they can still get along very well, she's almost like his big sister.
